Notes from the nonprofit

SPCA Tampa Bay is a For-All shelter and we support a healthy community and animal welfare. Being a “for-all” shelter means that SPCA Tampa Bay will not limit admission or refuse to take in a pet. We are for ALL shapes, colors, species, breeds, ages and situations. ALL are welcome here!

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

SPCA Tampa Bay is the only non-profit, animal welfare agency that runs an open-admission for-all animal shelter and veterinary center in Pinellas County. Our shelter in Largo cares for more than 7,000 animals annually that have been surrendered by their owners, along with injured wildlife. SPCA Tampa Bay cares for dogs, cats, pocket pets, exotic animals, and livestock like goats and pigs. Animals receive immunizations, medical care, behavior training, enrichment and loving care while they live at our shelter. Our adoptions team and volunteers work to match families with animals that are a good fit with the family’s home, lifestyle and personalities. There is no time limit for an animal’s stay at our shelter, and every animal receives compassionate care, regardless of its breed or size.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through passionate collaboration with our community, we transform the lives of animals.

SPCA Tampa Bay is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit locally governed by a volunteer board of directors. Like most U.S. animal shelters, we rely entirely on our program revenue and fundraising to sustain our operations, provide care for animals and serve the community. Despite a similar name, we are not affiliated with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) or Humane Society of the U.S.

A team of 90 staff members and 250 dedicated volunteers help us fulfill our mission.

Through passionate collaboration with our community, we transform the lives of animals.
Our vision is to create a community where every animal matters.

I. Through our For-All commitment, we welcome and serve all people and animals in our community.
II. Explore new diverse partnerships and services to expand our influence and impact for people and animals across the region
III. Build a culture of opportunity for donors and partners to invest in the sustainability and advancement of the mission.
IV. Elevate the wellbeing of animals, staff, and our community through the improvement of our in-house care and facilities, and targeted community programming.

Services:

- Animal admission, including the care of every surrendered animal
- Animal transport for sick or injured pets
- Lost/found pet assistance, working with our community partner Pinellas County Animal Services
- Wildlife rescue, working with local partners to provide medical care and rehab for wildlife
- Animal cruelty investigation for wildlife and livestock

Programs:

- Pet adoption, with a focus on matching every animal with a loving forever home
- Pebble's Food Bank, to provide free pet food to Pinellas County residents facing a financial hardship
- Free pet behavior help line, to address one-on-one behavior issues
- Veterinary care for owned pets

SPCA Tampa Bay expanded its programs in 2016 to help pets still in their homes. Our Veterinary Center, located in St. Petersburg, provides two separate services for any pet owner: a general, full-service veterinary practice and a high-volume spay/neuter clinic.

Veterinary Center services range from wellness, medical, surgery and general care services, along with spay and neuter services, for dogs and cats. With each visit, clients can feel good knowing they are helping to “paw it forward" for other animals in the community.

A portion of all revenue from the Veterinary Center supports the programs and services at our shelter in Largo. It also helps other families provide veterinary care for their pets through the Caldwell Keeping Families Together Fund.

SPCA Tampa Bay has cared for Pinellas County's homeless pets for more than 80 years. It was founded in St. Petersburg in 1940, and it moved to its 10-acre campus in Largo in 1962. SPCA Tampa Bay returned to St. Petersburg when it opened a second location – the SPCA Tampa Bay Veterinary Center – in 2016.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
